Legendary Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir believes that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should have not allowed chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq to meddle with the national team’s affairs during the World Cup.
Qadir noted that Inzamam’s presence in England and interference during the World Cup frustrated captain Sarfraz Ahmed and head coach Mickey Arthur.
As a result, the 63-year-old feels that the PCB should have take action by sidelining Inzamam and telling him to “shut up”.
“I fail to understand why the PCB can’t assert its authority,” Qadir told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “Inzamam’s responsibility was solely to select the squad before the tournament while he should have not played any role in the tour selection committee.
“Also Arthur and Sarfraz were unhappy with Inzamam’s presence in England, which is why it would have been better to [tell] the chief selector [to] shut up and sideline him.”
There has been a lot of speculation about Inzamam’s future as of late, with most of the rumours suggesting that he will be sacked as chief selector.
